The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.

Lotus has taken its recipe of lightness and power to the extreme by fitting
the 345bhp 3.5-litre supercharged V6 from the flagship Evora S into the
lighter, more focused Exige.
The result is the Exige S. It's the only Exige you can now buy, and is
longer, wider and more aggressive than ever.
Our resident racing driver and senior road tester Owne Mildenhall put the
car through its paces on the road and on Lotus' famous test track.

On this video I use CMS Laptimer, a free iPhone app, in my opinion the best
But now I use Harry's Lap Timer Pro. It has a cost, but much more powerful.
One of the early sessions in Montmélo, on the 31st October 2011.
We were still discovering the track, hence pretty slow laps on this video.
Having fun with a mighty Nissan GTR of unknown specs I have to say.
But boy, it goes... The acceleration is massive. My healthy Duratec Exige
S1, cannot fight in the straight. I topped 235 (around) on the speedo,
where the GTR was over 260 !!!
The car was really impressive and could turn as well, surprisingly well. I
was able to get back though.
Real trouble on that day for the GTR was heat, with tires and gearbox
heating up too fast, from what I understood.
My Exige stood up pretty well, so I am happy.
Circuit de Catalunya is the fastest track I ever drove on, even a little faster in the straight than SPA !

Sorry for the poor image quality in places and the squeaks and rattles at
low-speed (caused by a combination of my cameras IS system and the suction
A few links for those who want to skip bits.
Start of test drive: 0:35
